Autumn of Sarasota
Net2 Access Control Provides a Secure and Private Environment for Seniors
Autumn of Sarasota is a memory care community located in Sarasota, Florida. The facility houses over 45 residents and 40 staff are on hand at the 53,000 square foot location. Autumn of Sarasota is using Paxton’s access control to ensure patient privacy and safety.
The owners and management have created a place of hope to make the experience easier on families and help residents to greet each day with courage. Trained by the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute as well as the Alzheimer’s Association, Autumn’s staff members receive continuing education to keep thinking ahead and, to anticipate every need for residents with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy body, and other forms of dementia.
Autumn’s CEO, Jim Soper, wanted the residents to feel confident in the safety that was being provided for them. He says: “Privacy was an important issue that we needed to address when we were in the design phase. Making sure no one could enter a room unless they had access permissions ensured that the residents can have peace of mind and will not be intruded on.”
The management needed to make sure the residents in their care were safe and secure in their rooms and within the facility itself. With an on-site pharmacy, securing and monitoring certain areas was also a priority.
Autumn tested eight different systems before deciding on Paxton’s Net2 with long-range capabilities. The 97 readers are on every resident’s door and throughout the building, including the exits, kitchen, elevator and pharmacy room.
